John Michael McCormack as a stonemason

One of the neat things that happens as a family historian/genealogist is finding tidbits like this page below. It shows that John Michael McCormack (my great-grand uncle) was owed $36.75 for stonework at Nevada State University which later became University of Nevada at Reno.

It is things like this that add flavor to a person’s life that otherwise might just consist of dates and places. I got this page and many others from a new collection, “Compilation of Published Sources” at MyHeritage.com.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you learned something maybe new and hopefully interesting!
